QOTD: Kavanaugh and faux opposition

Now that it’s too late to prevent a total rightwing takeover of the Supreme Court, the Democrats pretend to be the party of opposition

…Kavanaugh’s role in protecting the Bush administration torture regime has taken a back seat. The Democrats don’t ask because they don’t care. Or rather they care about upholding the Democrats’ role as partners in the duopoly, including as Obama famously said “torturing folks.”

Kavanaugh says that the bulk data collection of every American’s phone calls, emails and texts is “entirely consistent” with the Constitution. He also believes that the president is kinglike, with no obligation to heed congress or the courts.This “doctrine of the unitary executive” is at least as dangerous as the possibility that he engaged in an attempted rape.



  1. This summary asserts that the FBI had “concealed the true facts”, that there had been witness tampering, and that the report had wilfully ignored facts that refuted its own conclusions. There it sits in perpetuity, a strange rebuke for Mr Kavanaugh by his own fellow judges on the federal bench.

    1. Hmmm… The “K”s of October. Kavanaugh, Kanye, Kashoggi and Kelly. Train wrecks.
